    my laptop specification :
    model: hp pavilion dv6 1319tx
    processor: Intel(R) core(TM) 2 duo T6600 @ 2.20GHz
    bios: HP Version F.42 03/23/2010
    windows 8.1 64 bit

    Now in this laptop, somehow i`m left with single 2GB ddr3 (the other memory slot is vacant) samsung ram with following specification:
    M471B5673EH1-CH9 CNF 2GB 204p PC3-10600 CL9 16c 128x8 DDR3-1333 2Rx8 1.5V SODIMM NOB, Samsung

    To increase the speed i bought 4GB ddr3 1333MHz kingston ram with following specification:
    Kingston ValueRAM DDR3 4 GB Laptop DRAM (KVR1333D3S9/ KVR13S9S8/4)
    SO-DIMM Memory Module
    204-pin Configuration
    9-9-9 CAS Latency

    Unfortunately when i inserted the new 4gb ram along with 2 gb ram and pressed power button, the laptop turned on but the display was gone. Then i tried swapping the two......, then i took out 2gb ram allowing only 4gb to remain, .........then changed the slot....likewise all possible combinations but only to my regret none worked except when old 2gb sits solely on the motherboard. The new ram seems to be fine.

    Please tell me whether there is any compatibility issue between the rams or between the motherboard/cpu/ram because the old 2gb had 8 chips in two rows on it but the new 4gb had only 4 chips in one row. images attached
    please tell me why it doesn't work and if i need different ram for the cpu.... what specifications should i check for.
    i searched all over the internet about this issue but couldn't understand...plz help

    Better try to put same amount of memory on both memory channels. That means: memory module capacity should be same on both modules, 4GB+4GB or 2GB+2GB. Combination 2GB+4GB will cause problems, and this time it may be serious enough so that laptop refuses to work.
